This year it looks like there won't be a flatland contest at the Offline Sports Games in Budapest, Hungary. Nevertheless the locals are organizing the annual KTGM Jam on the same weekend. The official jam date is September 12 but there will be session during the whole weekend: "This year riders from all around Europe will meet up on the huge spot of KTGM (3500m2, 38000ft2) for 3 full days of riding, from Friday to Sunday, to train, chill and get motivated."
Our annual Bauer Flatland competition is going to be organized this year too, at Homokbödöge, Hungary on August 29. Last year everyone had a great and they hope it's going to be a fun weekend once again! There is no entry-fee, free camping (bring your tent) and a party on saturday evening. In case of bad weather, the event is going to take place one week later on the 5th of September. More details: Bauer Flatland Contest 2015.
Brilliant new edit! Viki has been working on this one for half a year. It's called after the old Nirvana song "something in the way" but there is absolutely nothing standing in the way between Viki and his combos. Watching this video makes you think that he can do anything he wants on his bike. Watch the video and go out to keep pushing your limits like Viki does!
Check his comment as well: "Creativity is a blessing, it is my life! This "unfinished" project have been filmed from January 2015 until August 2015, trying to find a new me, trying to go out of my comfort zone and trying to be different. When I go my own way I feel free.These are moments that I want to share and give to Flatland. It is infinity! The search never ends, it feels infinity when you search! Keep the search..this is life!"

Nao is now riding for Motel Works and JYKK Japan. He posted a statement in Japanese on his blog together with this fresh edit. It's great to see how he keeps developing his pumping and spinning styles over the years. Enjoy!
Vladimir Isaev is from Russia and shared his new edit with us. It's his entry for a video competition of the clothing brand Ziq&yoni. The winner will get a sponsorship. What's much more remarkable is that he has a serious health problem. To deal with his kidneys failure he has to undergo hemodialisys 3 times a week for 4hours. Despite this problem he finds the energy to ride as you can see. We'll ask Vladimir to share more of his story with us. Stay tuned!
Here is an update from Stuttgart, Germany. The BMX Jam at the Hip Hop Open Festival took place a few weeks ago. Kunstform was the main sponsor and they also released this highlight edit now with some flatland and ramp footage.
